Beauty | May Ipsy Review

I can’t believe May’s already here (and it’s almost gone)…but that’s probably because I’ve been traveling non-stop (hence the lack of posts on here recently). The first part of May I galavanted around the Grand Canyon (with a 24-hour pitstop in Las Vegas), followed by a visit to the midwest for my MBA graduation, law […]

Beauty | April Ipsy Review

Another month, another review! I feel like April’s flown by, but that’s probably because I’ve started to get into “graduation mode” with classes wrapping up and finals starting. So without further adieu, a review of this month’s Ipsy bag: THEME: This month’s theme was “social butterfly,” which according to the card that came in the bag, […]

Beauty | March Ipsy Review

THEME: Creative, in collaboration with LA-based artist Priscilla Witte. She’s a street artist known for “colorful murals and relatable illustrations,” inspiring Ipsy’s first-ever “coloring book-style Glam Bag.” I really like the idea behind this month’s theme, because featuring actual artists gives the bag more personality and gives you someone to look up and follow (if you’re […]

That being said, this month was a mixed bag of emotions (kind of like my life right now), but with regard to this review, I’m […]

Beauty | January Ipsy Review

THEME: Game Face (hence the rustic photo setting…#diditforthegram) BAG: Ugh, Ipsy, WHY? I love the idea of putting on your “game face” & how that can be inspirational…but this bag literally feels like a gym sock/kitchen sponge hybrid. The materials feel cheap, it makes a squishy sound when you touch it, and can easily get caught […]

Beauty | Face Mask 101

One of my favorite ways to de-stress during finals is to use face masks. They do all kinds of things for the skin (depending on the mask and ingredients) and can really turn your day around if you’re feeling frumpy (which for me, during finals, is almost all the time). I was told when I […]

Beauty | November Ipsy Review

So I bit the bullet and renewed my Ipsy subscription for another year. I was quite surprised at this month’s selection; there were lots of new brands that haven’t been featured in the time I’ve been an Ipsy member, like: Laneige, MAC, Lime Crime, Too Faced, Youth to the People, and Ouai. Lots of luxury […]
